The purpose of this set is to document the 'adventurers' who were approximately 900 stockholders mentioned in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd charters of the Virginia colony. There are 109 of these stockholders who qualified as either 'adventurers of purse' or 'adventurers of person'. The 'adventurers of purse' were individuals "who either came to Virginia in the period 1607-1624/5 and had descendants or who did not come to Virginia within that period but whose grandchildren were residents there." The 'adventurers of person' were individuals who were immigrants to Virginia and left descendants there.

Contains information in accessible and readable style. Have found facts about many Virginia immigrant ancestors not found anywhere else. This in invaluable as a source for Virginia settler families such as my Hamptons.
